Stewart has taken his tie off for some reason, and Emily has a belt on her podium (which isn’t supposed to be there).

Stewart’s also the only one with his feet on the floor (both figuratively and literally).

There would normally be a digital one on the floor behind the camera, but yeah probably is come to think of it. Looks quite thick!

They really do look like a bunch of naughty teenagers on those chairs, and Stewart’s legs look soooo long, it’s hilarious.

I can see why Boris skipped the previous debate, he's not doing very well here.

Eurgh, what a terrible choice. I thought Hillary vs Trump was bad, but this is just atrocious. Stewart seems the least worst option, he at least seems realistic and I appreciate he isn't chucking out false promises on tax or pulling the wool over people's eyes on no deal.

But that's probably where my agreement with him ends. I seriously do not like his idea of national service, that's the old Tory trope of taking us back to the 50s. That alone is a deal breaker for me on him, before you even get to the usual tory domestic policies.

As for the other candidates, absolute train wreck.

I reckon it'll be Johnson vs. Gove for the members. Great.

I just can't see them implementing it. It's going to cost way too much to make it worth while.

Also, the Army very much do not want to deal with a shitload of people who don't want to be there.

Not to mention the state run institutions aren't actually a very safe place to intern children.

Also, it turns out this morning that Abdullah from Bristol who raised the question about words having consequences, is actually a bit of an anti-semite it seems. :dread:

Perhaps he meant words have consequences thanks to the Jews that control the entire WORLD. :x :x :x
